Organizational Behaviour and Change in Europe
Case Studies

Edited by:


June 1996 | 272 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This stimulating case-study volume addresses key issues in organizational behaviour organizational change and human resource management in a range of European organizations. Its consistent emphasis is organizational change in a shifting, `internationalizing' world and sensitivity to the impact of different cultures on the problems as they are defined, as well as on their solutions.

The carefully selected cases capture realistic breadth and complexity, including firm location of `OB' and `HRM' themes in the context of the broader market and other issues facing the organizations concerned. The themes covered include: managing growth and `Europeanization'; managing decline and crisis; transforming cultures; organization design; leadership, autonomy and control; and organizational learning and change.
